MEMBERSHIP & GOAL:
Members of the Outdoor Club of South Jersey can select a walking/running mileage goal of 1000 ,750 or 500 miles for the calendar year. Reaching your annual goal is based on mileage you complete during months you are a member of the mileage club.
Walk (or run) on club hikes, around your neighborhood, at the mall, or on a treadmill. The only requirement is that to count mileage for any "event" in the day - you must accumulate at least 1 consecutive mile for that event. There is no limit to how many "events" one might have in a day. Consecutive mile means you can’t walk a half mile in the morning and a half mile in the evening and count 1 mile for your total for that day - but you can hike 1 mile in the morning and 1 in the evening for 2 total miles for that day.
REPORTING MILES: Keep track of your miles for the month - and email your month's total miles each month.
AWARDS PATCH: Those reaching their goal by the end of the year - receive a patch at our awards gathering held early the following year. The patch depicts a hiker and reads
"MEMBER 500+ Mile Club 500+ Miles in 20__ Outdoor Club of South Jersey ".
The year is handwritten on your patch.
